The main aim of the project is to provide qualified background documents for the implementation of measures focused on reduction of food in catering.

Partial aims are:

  2. To identify the causes of food waste on the side of operators as well as consumers (customers) in selected establishments and to derive from them general factors leading to food waste in canteens and fast foods,
  3. To propose measures supporting reduction of food waste in the segment of catering for practical use in firms, NGOs / CSOs as well as public administration.
